There’s tons of stuff that would be interesting. The Leafs aren’t lacking offensive weapons.
Preds: LEEEEERROY JENKINS!!!
Leafs, Habs and Preds should do some sort of huge Game of Thrones Season 7 Epis. 7 meeting to talk strategies to solve an end of the World problem like this.
Look the Habs have a huge bomb in Weber that often scores there but the rest just doesn't work. We have that weapon and it still is not enough. The Leafs have all these skills and it doesn't work. Preds have a stacked D and it doesn't come together at point.
"Our powerplay is our toughness."
Wasn't there a thread on here early on in the season more or less calling the Leafs PP the GOAT?
Don't like Babs deflecting and blaming his assistants. Bad idea to create drama within the locker room right before the playoffs.
When was the last time a team had this much or more SOG on the PP in a single game?
Did they score on any of those shots today?
The Rags goalie had a helluva a game. Might never have such a game in the rest of his career. In the Leaf's first PP he looked like Hasek at his best. Just crazy.
No only goal was an ES Goal by Kapanen
Boston vs Toronto last yrs playoffs
I need a replay of that whole PP, because advanced stats tell me it was simply just ridiculously crazy. I've never seen something like that in terms of xGF. Nearly 5 in the span of one single PP.
They lost 4-1.
Kadri has 11 shots himself
I don't know what it all means, but it was one of the more dominant looking PPs that didn't end in a goal that I've ever seen. And I've been watching this game since the early 80s.
Georgiev saved 55 of 56. That has to be one of the best non-shutout save percentages ever.
Well, there’s your problem lol
xGF = Expected goals for
It's basically Corsi/Fenwick if you were to include parameters such as shot quality, distance, etc. (aka the "danger" of a scoring chance). It's based on averages and generally stays under 3-4 in most games for a team. When you see such an elevation, it basically means the team has had a **** ton of high danger scoring chances, which seems to be what you saw too.
Yup, sounds right lol. Like bang on.
They still lost 4-1.
It was just a discussion, to much of it being drawn from a piece of film.
Habs: You guys are cute.
Leafs have great players obviously, I cant believe they haven't tried marner and Mathews on opposite sides so Mathews can take a 1 timer. Marner also needs to become a shooting threat to reduce the predictability but that may take time. The first change is obvious and immediate
Any coach that doesn't fear Auston Matthew's shot should be fired for rampant incompetence.
